Biology influences our everyday lives, and is at the forefront of social change, for example, the use of genetically-modified organisms, humanity’s effect on the environment, and sustainable energy and food production. Studying Biology, you investigate the structures and functions of living organisms together with how they interact with other systems around them. This degree programme provides a broad survey of the various biological disciplines, including anthropology, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, evolution, genetics, infection and immunity, microbiology, and the physiology of animals and plants. The 'Year Abroad' between Stages 2 and 3, offers you the opportunity to study abroad in either the USA, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Finland, Turkey or Spain. Opportunities are also available to work in one of our research labs during the summer vacation after your second year. This degree is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology.
